In his book “The Signal and the Noise,” Nate Silver quotes this statistic from the Encyclopedia of Peace Psychology.

“Terrorist organizations are fundamentally weak and unstable:  as is supposedly true of new restaurants, 90 percent of them fail within the first year.” (pages 435-436)

I don’t really know what to say about this information – it just tickles me.
